The remote database server is affected by a denial of service
The version of PostgreSQL installed on the remote host is 8.3.x prior
to 8.3.23, 8.4.x prior to 8.4.16, 9.0.x prior to 9.0.12, 9.1.x prior to
9.1.8 or 9.2 prior to 9.2.3. It is, therefore, potentially affected by
a denial of service vulnerability due to a flaw in the enum_recv()
function of 'backend/utils/adt/enum.c'. By exploiting this flaw, a
remote attacker could crash the affected application.
